This original one-of-a-kind oil painting, House of the Seven Suns, is by Annika Connor.
This piece, Summer Day Dreams, is an unframed 40" x 40" Oil on Linen painting.
Painted in the artist's studio in Brooklyn, NY, this piece is inspired by a house in Rhinebeck, NY, that spoke to the artist's imagination as it seemed to be begging to be painted.
As Annika started to sketch the house, the old home began to speak to her imagination as it seemed to want to be surrounded by both the phases of the moon and the sun.
The mysterious nature of how this house called to the artist and why she felt compelled to paint it was unknown. Still, Annika says, " I knew she had to listen to what the house wanted, and she painted a bit like a tarot card to honor the mysterious forces that drove my paint brushes to capture its likeness."
Even the title was curious as the phrasing came to Annika while she was sitting in church. Annika hopes that by capturing its essence, the old historic home will be happy.
Shortly after completing the oil painting, the house was sold to new owners, and Annika hopes that the house will go on to speak to new dreamers now.
